Review: HD 7790 Best Of Edition

Although the GPU and memory are stock overclocked from 1000MHz/1500MHz to 1075MHz/1600MHz respectively, the card did not experience any overheating issues, nor was it loud. The fans are loud when they are manually set at 75+ percent, but as long as you keep them in auto mode they will be quiet. They are not inaudible when the card is under load, but they can hardly be heard outside the chassis.

Power consumption is not high, either, up to 100W. The HD 7790 uses a bit more power than Nvidia’s GTX 650 Ti, but then again it is faster than the green team’s offering.
